. and the problem for the administration is, they can spin it and jay carney can refuse to give out the enrollment numbers and they can play games with the timing, but it doesn't matter. ultimately, the numbers are what they are. people are getting these notices. one of the other arguments that defenders of the law have been making lately, that if you get your insurance through your employer, you're really not affected by any of this. that's total and utter nonsense, as we just heard from her. but you hear this from everybody. we got a letter at the weekly standard telling us our premiums would be increasing. you talk to people across the country and they tell you their premiums will be increasing. this affects everybody. >> and it affected the politics here. listen to max baucus, democrat, talking about this rollout. >> i think it makes better sense. let's just see how much of this can be put together, how much humpty dumpty can be fixed in the next month. if it looks like humpty dumpty is not being put back better, maybe we should start thinking about delaying the penalties. it's not right to pe
d.c. types going, we'll have jay carney on today. listen to how he answers the questions about this. this never happened. at least the person at the top and most of us, no, never. it is an answer you will never accept on anything in your own personal life. but it's very interesting for me to often hear how these guys and women answer questions that they're not really comfortable with. >> i will say this, does this matter? i think it matters, anything involving choosing a vice president inside politics, ittette goods how these candidates really think and make decisions which does matter for leadership and being in the white house. what is this about barack obama that he would never have replaced joe biden when he had these options. it may say loyalty. that's what it would have said about w. and george h.w. >> that's getting a little tired. i have to tell you. nobody cares more about this process than the man who's going to be on the ticket with whoever they choose. >> excellent point. excellent point. >> good conversation. >> i don't know if there's sand that deep to bury your head i
the press," david gregory, white house press secretary, jay carney, leigh gallagher and later, celebrity chef rocco dispirito. >> are you going to put on an apron and cook? >> yeah, i'm going to put on an apron and say mmm delicious. top stories from the politico playbook. bill karins is up now. >> as far as my forecast goes for today, if you are going to be traveling in the northeast, the airports are going to be a big issue especially this morning. we have strong thunderstorms with high winds that are going to blow through the big cities. as far as right now, they are located in central pennsylvania on interstate 81. they are going to head into the big city. not even lightning with the storm. it's a strong line of storms with winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour. winds are 36 in philly. 39 in buffalo. a windy day. it's very warm. feels like the spring feel with the humidity. when the front goes through, bad weather with it. you don't want to be under big trees with the winds gusting to 40 to 50 miles per hour. the rain is early today in the east. it's when the worst airport delays wil
. >>> in the meantime the white house admitted in the form of jay carney, it's true, some medical policies don't meet the affordable care act's minimum standard and so they don't qualify, you won't be able to keep them. think about that. the white house is now admitting that they have known for, as it turns out, since 2010, according to nbc news and the "wall street journal," they knew back then that there are many, in fact millions of americans who would lose their health insurance policies. and yet the president was out all the way from 2009 until recently saying this. >> we will keep this promise to the american people. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan. period. no one will take it away. no matter what. first, if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> anyone frustrated yet? what was sold versus what's being told to the american people now
think he's put out statements through jay carney that he would never go that far. that he's been very careful in walking the line that has been walked before in terms of presidential power and opportunities and options. >> well, that may be the case. but the government, in general, the administration and the directives that come down from, by tone or other avenues has been to expand government powers and to take, take some leeway here and there with certain, like for example the irs investigations of tea party people. i mean, i think we are all aware that there's more government overreach than we've experienced before in our personal lives. and i think that's what appeals to ted cruz's, to his constituents. now some of what he -- >> yes, but those people work at -- but kathleen, we're talking about the president here. did he appoint those people at irs or did w? >> apparently the president has nothing to do with anything. >> no. >> he pleads ignorance on everything that comes along in the news these days. >> wasn't that a holdover person? you pointed the case of irs. so i have to go a
's credibility on the issue has taken a hit. jay carney says over time they hope to change the narrative because as more people get the benefits and see the positives, the think it's going to turn around. >> ed, administration officials insist 5% of americans will be in the middle of this. but the president promised all of us. 5% is a lot of millions of people, and republicans say they think it's higher. >> that's right. 5% basically, 14-15 million people. so that's negligent. -- significant. and the republicans quoting a story, if you go back to the federal register in june of 20 10. officials posted comments about the new law which had just been signed into law, that suggested it would not just be a hit to individual insurance plans but disruption of employer, based health plans and we may see people being dropped there. so that would change the narrative again negatively for the administration, because it would be a bigger personal of people, it would include people who have insurance through their employer, which the white house says you'll be fine if you're in that category. this report fro
administration try to get beyond this? >> you see they're push back very strongly in these daily briefings. jay carney has reporters challenging things that we're reporting that of course is out there. the president went on the road this week to try to defend it. it's been a very sharp defense. >> and they're getting help from people like oracle. >> they brought in these tech experts. yesterday they said there was somebody from google coming in to try to turn this thing around. again, the problem is the intro introduction for most americans to the affordable care act has not been a good one. they have to change if this is going to work. >> jan, as you pointed out, the president promised if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. that's not true for those who get individual coverage. there's small portions but 3 million -- >> we think the number is going to be more like 10 million or 15 million. >> what about the promise that president obama says if you like your dock, to you can keep your doctor. >> it's not just a broken website. people are finding out a

briefings. jay carney is having with reporters challenging things that we're reporting, that of course, is out there. the president went on the road this week to try to defend it. a very sharp defense. >> help from people like oracle and some of the top companies. >> they brought in tech experts yesterday. they said somebody from google coming in. but again, the problem is the introduction for most americans to the affordable care act has not been a good one. and that is impressions have to change if this law is going to work. >> you pointed ot out the president promised if you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. that's not true for those who get individual coverage. they're a small portion, but they're still about 3 million people. >> that we know so far. we think that number will be more like 10 or 15 million. >> what about the promise that the president has made that if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. >> this is all again, it's not a broken website. that's not the only problem. americans are finding out about the affordable care
any insurance, press secretary jay carney essentially says that it makes no essential to replace no insurance with inadequate health insurance. >> no hospitalization, no, you know, let's go back to where insurance companies could throw you off whenever they want. maybe slap a annual limit on you. or, a lifetime limit. exclude you if you have a preexisting condition. charge you double if you're a woman, like that's, you know the world prior to the affordable care act that there, they want to return to because there has been no alternative offered. >> reporter: but the president's critics say setting minimum standards for health care coverage is hardly in the spirit of his promise if you like your plan you can keep it. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says some of the standards themselves are questionable. he read a letter from one of his constituents on the senate floor. >> he is not happy about this at all. especially given the fact that a plan on the obamacare exchanges will dramatically drive up his insurance costs from $400 a month to more than $700 a month with zero sub
rollout, we are learning that six people were able to sign up on day one. yesterday, jay carney said this is a dog bite man's story as we talk about health care but yet this is a big deal and we're learning more. is it accurate or wise i should say for the white house to downplay this as dog bite's man? >> i think they have to accept the fact this was a big screw up. i think new york mayor laguardia said when i make a mistake, it's a butte. this is something the president cares about more than anything in his legacy, the major contribution he has made to the social safety net. it will ultimately succeed, but it only succeed if he keeps his credibility. i think it's important as we go through this rocky period he is seen the man you go to. he always has to tell the whole truth. bobby kennedy used to say hang a lantern on your problem and let people know what your problem is so they will begin to trust you more. real quickly a yes or no. do you think the president needs to come out and talk more about this? >> no. i think he needs to be candid about the fact the issue is still this one
. jay carney was asked about, hey, what's the number going to be? he is now tamping down expectations, as well he should. watch. >> if you're asking me will enrollment be low, the answer is yes because that was always going to be the case. >> oh really? how come the first thing you said the reason you can't get on is the high volume. and how many democrats do we hearsay there is high volume because people really love this thing. six really loved it the first day. >> how can you assess low if you don't have a number? that is what is interesting as well. they're saying we don't have the information but it's low. you must be looking at something to give that low assessment. >> the website has been disastrous. i've got to give the president credit, he said seven weeks ago, he asked is it ready and they told him it was ready. again punting and blaming, not taking responsibility. that's the vice president trying to save the president, who has been busy lately, i guess, all summer. now let's talk about the other element to this. the report we told you about yesterday that insurance companies
